    I think the memo is sufficiently formal.

    I am expected to write no less than 100 words, but there are 85 words. Could you help me to make it longer? Thank you!

    Aha! I didn't realize that this was an assignment or homework. I don't think many companies place a requirement on emails of word minimums. Here's a suggestion for your 100 word requirement: ask everyone to bring a snack.
